Has Your Property Been Properly Assessed?
If your property taxes have increased significantly and the increase seems out of proportion with other properties in your vicinity, the assessment may have been the result of an error.
Pennsylvania law allows property owners to appeal tax assessments, but individual real property owners cannot be expected to know the nuances of these laws and how they are applied. This is why it is important to obtain the counsel of an experienced real estate law attorney before appealing your assessment.
The lawyers at RRS Legal, LLC serve the interests of property owners in Montgomery, Berks, Chester, Lehigh, Lancaster, Schuylkill and Delaware counties and throughout surrounding Pennsylvania communities. We can provide you with the experienced guidance you need to make the most of your property tax assessment appeal.
Exploring Grounds For Appeal
There are many grounds under which a taxpayer may appeal a property tax assessment, including:
- The taxes were not uniformly imposed
- The property is not properly zoned
- The property has defects that were not considered in the initial assessment
- Sales of comparable properties do not line up with the assessed value
- Facts such as square footage and room counts were not accurate
One crucial fact or circumstance could make a significant difference in your tax bill, and our attorneys are highly knowledgeable in identifying those factors. We can interface on your behalf with the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue Board of Assessment Appeals on your behalf, preparing all documents to ensure you have the best possible chance of obtaining a favorable outcome.
